Why should YOUR school or student club take the PLUNGE?

  • All money raised directly benefits nearly 9,000 Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes. Special Olympics gives every person the opportunity to be a champion and show the world that there are millions of different abilities but no disabilities!
  • Experiencing the Polar Plunge with friends makes awesome memories to last a lifetime!
  • It’s a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community and possibly earn volunteer service hours. (Individual school restrictions apply)
  • If your school is a Unified Champion School, 25% of the money your team raises will come right back to your club to promote inclusion in your school!

How do you raise money?

  • There are so many ways to raise money to take the Plunge. Here are some helpful tips we’ve put together on how to get started.
